MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Thad Moffitt, the grandson of NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty, has joined DGR-Crosley to compete in the ARCA Menards Series opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
Moffitt will drive a Petty Blue Ford with support from the Performance Plus Richard Petty Signature Series.
Moffitt, 19, joins the David Gilliland-led Ford Development team after a part-time ARCA Menards Series schedule in 2019, where he earned four top-10 finishes in seven starts.
“Daytona is a very special place for my family,” Moffitt said. “I had the opportunity to race there last year in the ARCA Menards Series, and can’t wait to go back. Between the experience I’ve gained throughout the course of the season, and the talent within the DGR-Crosley organization, I feel confident that we will have a strong showing.”
Performance Plus, a high-quality lubricant partner, will continue their support of Moffitt as he takes the next step in his racing career.
“Performance Plus Richard Petty Motor Oil was developed to continue the winning heritage of the Petty family, and I’m proud to be a part of it. The relationship that we are building is really special, and I’m looking forward to continuing that into 2020,” said Moffitt.
The Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire is scheduled for Feb. 8 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
